Michael Cohen is heading to jail soon, but this hasn’t prevented Congress from invited him to testify against President Trump and his allies. But he never expected this to happen at his hearing on Capitol Hill.
Lynn Patton, an official at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, sat behind Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) during Cohen’s testimony. She was brought into Trump’s orbit by Cohen himself 10 years ago and has released a statement destroying Cohen’s lies.
In a last-ditch effort to save face with the DC swamp before heading to prison, Cohen has made many claims, including that Trump is somehow a racist. Patton tweeted that “it doesn’t take you 15 years to call someone a racist. Unless they’re not one.”
She also embraced her appearance at Cohen’s testimony, saying in the same tweet that she was “honored to be the special guest of @RepMarkMeadows today. I am here in support of @POTUS and in support of the truth, as Michael Cohen (knows that I know) it to be.”
Patton confirmed in a Facebook statement her relationship with Cohen, which used to be a close one. “I considered Michael Cohen to be one of my very best friends. Countless people can confirm that we were virtually inseparable,” she said.
She then dropped a bombshell: “What many of you may not be aware of is the fact that I can personally confirm that the ONLY reason Michael Cohen ‘turned on’ the President of the United States is because Mueller threatened to throw his wife in jail for up to 30 years.”
